A flowing river and a tree
|A flowing river and a tree,
Eden's outstanding features are,
Man to supply with food and drink
That he may live fore'er.
|God is in Christ to be my supply,
God as the Spirit nourisheth me;
If upon Christ in spirit I feed,
Filled with His life I'll be.
|The tree the glorious Christ does show
As living food to man supplied,
That he God's riches may enjoy,
Thus to be satisfied.
|The river does the Spirit show,
Coming man's spirit to supply,
That with God's riches he be filled,
Holy to be thereby.
|The Christ of glory is my life,
He as the Spirit lives in mine,
That I with God be fully blent
And in His image shine.
|I would exalt this glorious Christ,
Ever the Spirit I'd obey,
Making His glory fully known,
Filled with His grace for aye.
